A wavelength division multiplexing access network architecture with cobweb topology is proposed in this paper. It can be a candidate for metro access network with high reliability in the future. This architecture can provide two protection methods. The protection strategy which can maximize the protected traffic is elaborated in the context. Mathematical models of system performance such as network scale and link reliability are established and analyzed in this paper.
